About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Ferryside

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Ferryside and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Ferryside property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Ferryside property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there may be a risk of asbestos sealant present in the flat. What is asbestos, can it be handled easily and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly silicate material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. duct connectors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe lagging insulation. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful not to remove it. Professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos during a Ferryside building survey. Surveyors will note possible asbestos during the Ferryside survey and will recommend professional testing.

Chimney stacks

On a Ferryside HomeBuyer Report, what might a an red light rating mean for chimney stacks?

Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. One example issue could be loose chimney vent connectors. They will be checked thoroughly, using binoculars as necessary. A report on a lower ground flat, for instance, may not require this.

House Prices

How much is within the right sort of amount to buy a property in Ferryside in for and What things will a Ferryside chartered surveyor consider when estimating house prices in Ferryside ?

There are a huge number of issues that can affect property values for instance the tenure or the number of bathrooms. .

The most reliable way for you to get an impartial home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service. A qualified RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).
